This award came to me as a surprise considering that my lectures were delivered in English. I’m very happy and excited not only because of the honor of being chosen, but, also of the thought that the students are now more open to a globalized medical environment. To my students, thank you so much guys!
In addition to making your lectures more informative, delivering them in a more interesting way is also important; and, to maintain the attention of the students, a participative and interactive lecture would certainly help. In anatomy, where there are too many terminologies to memorize, giving tips on how to remember these terms is also something the students would appreciate.
Becoming a doctor has given me a deeper understanding of human life. Also realizing the value of medical care for all, and the need to do more studies and research to further advance our medical knowledge.
While I was working as a public health physician in a depressed community in the Philippines, I started to realize all the health care inadequacies—my personal inadequacies, the inadequacies of health education, the inadequacies of the health care systems, and the inadequacies of health institutions and governments to provide the best care for all patients.
My days in medical school were the busiest days of my life. As a diligent student, it was like 90% for my medical studies and only 10% for all other activities.
For most medical students, spending much time studying and less time for fun is too much a sacrifice; but what I can tell you is that studying to eventually become a medical doctor is really worthy of such sacrifice. Just try to learn to love studying medicine and you might as well find joy in it.
